Sacramento Kings Season Preview History
Sacramento Kings 2012 NBA Preview:
After being spared moving to Anaheim, the Sacramento Kings’ fans have a lot to cheer about besides their team not moving away. Two of the most intriguing young players in the NBA play for their team in the forms of former Rookie of the Year guard Tyreke Evans and power forward DeMarchcus Cousins. The team ranked fourth in the league in rebounds thanks to Cousins’ amazing rookie year. If the team can get around these two players, then Sacramento will be back in the playoffs soon.
2010-2011 Sacramento Kings NBA Preview:
The Sacramento Kings won a disappointing 25 games last season, landing them near the bottom of the Western Conference. However, with a long list of returning starters and improving young talent, there's a chance that the Kings could surprise some people and return to the playoffs for the first time in five years.
The Kings are lead by reigning Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans. The 6-foot-6 Evans averaged more than 20 points a game, while dishing out 5.8 assists and grabbing 5.3 rebounds per contest during his first season as the team's point guard. Joining Evans is Omri Casspi, who showed promise in his first year in the NBA.
Sacramento also made several acquisitions during the offseason that should improve their chances of entering the posteason. The team drafted Kentucky standout DeMarcus Cousins, who should be able to make an immediate impact at power forward. The Kings also picked up center Samuel Dalembert in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers. With Carl Landry and Jason Thompson down low as well, the Kings will have a solid frontcourt lineup.

The Sacramento Kings head into the 2009-2010 NBA season looking to rebound from their NBA worst record last year. The Kings hired new Head Coach Paul Westphal to energize their franchise and take Sacramento in a new direction. Westphal has some talented young Kings to work with, including new draft pick Tyreke Evans who will likely play point guard for the Kings. Evans joins Kevin Martin in the backcourt and has Andres Nocioni and Spencer Hawes upfront to help lead the Kings.
